Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
You will get none, it does not tell the network it has not blocked it, it just does not accept the message.
This is done on purpose so you do not know you are being blocked.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

What about calls?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Same, it would seem like it is just ringing, then it would cut out.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

OK. But when I called he other day I was put through to voicemail, as normal. Should I be getting some other message?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
No, you would not get a message if they blocked you on the call.
Depending on how they setup the block it either rings out or sends you to voicemail.
The point of the blocking is to make it appear your not being blocked.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have also called from a completely random landline. This time it rang and rang, then just went dead. Could there actually be problem with the mobile itself?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Yes that is also possible or the fact that the person has the phone on silent or is not answering the calls.
Or is also blocking numbers not in their contact list.
It would not be a network error though as then you get a message about this that they cannot be reached.

Hi again

Can the message that I Ieft be accessed by the receiver, even if I am blocked? Will they get a message to say they have a voicemail?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
If it got through to voicemail then yes they will
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

OK .... then if I am blocked, why do I have the option to even connect to the phone, let alone be able to leave a message. Just a bit puzzled ....

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Depends on how they have blocked you or even IF they have.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Well, its unlikely, but thank you.

One final question, if I may? Can the person (who MAY have blocked me) still send me texts, even though they can't see mine? And how long do blocks last, do they need to be renewed/updated at intervals?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
yes, if they blocked you they can still contact you.
Blocks last until they unblock you, they are not time based.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for your time, Richard.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
your most welcome
